Gaza: the umpteenth bloodbath floods the Middle East

The victims are the proletarian and proletarianized Palestinian masses of the Gaza Strip, massacred by Israeli bombings, trapped in a territory they cannot escape from, strangled in the grip of savagely warring bourgeoisies. Their enemy is not only Israeli imperialism, supported and fed by all the imperialisms present in the area (first and foremost the USA). The Palestinian proletarians in the Gaza Strip - similarly, but even more so, to those with Israeli passports or living on the East Bank - are also the hostages and victims of their own bourgeoisie – of the whole of the Palestinian bourgeoisie. They are the hostages and victims of bourgeois factions representing interests that,under the pressure of the world economic crisis, are coagulating around the major imperialist States: inevitably subordinate bourgeoisies that express “fake” States, fragile but strong and well-structured in the exercise of their anti-proletarian dictatorship.

Proletarians, beware! “innovation” rhymes with “repression”!

 In hobnail boots the crisis pursues its onward march, crushing millions of proletarian lives everywhere in the world. It is a crisis ofoverproduction of goods and capitals, astructural crisis, i.e. implicit in the very nature of capitalist production. It is not an anomaly or some sort of pathology due to “bad management”, “obscure plotting”, the “egoism” of individuals or institutions, as many give us to understand: it isthe norm, the very physiology of capitalism, whose iron rule is to go on producingmore and more with the objective of ceaselessly accumulating profits, income, interest.

Revolutionary defeatism – a necessary perspective

The endless massacre of proletarian and proletarianized Palestinian masses, the dead-end chaos in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Ukraine, the total instability of Afghanistan and Pakistan and crucial areas of Central Africa, tens of thousands of deaths everywhere, hundreds of thousands of refugees travelling towards nothing, destruction and devastation: the hotbeds of war are multiplying, extending and deepening under the pressure of a world economic crisis that dictates the re-charting of the political and social geographies arising out of two twentieth-century world wars. It is no longer a question of sporadic local conflicts breaking out here and there: what we are now witnessing are points of no return in a new escalation whose necessary outlet, from the point of view of capital, is a new world bloodbath.

More on the Revolutionary Party

Not only does the party not include in its ranks all the individuals that constitute the proletarian class, but not even the majority of them. It includes the minority that acquires the collective preparation and maturity, in terms of both theory and militancy, corresponding to the general and final vision of the historical movement worldwide and over the whole course of time from the formation of the proletariat to its revolutionary victory. The issue of individual consciousness is not the basis for forming the party: not only is it impossible for every proletarian to be conscious or, even less, gain a cultural mastery of the class doctrine; it is even impossible for each individual militant and cannot even be guaranteed amongst the leaders.

The enemy of the Palestinian proletariat is in Gaza City and in Jerusalem, in Tel Aviv as in Amman, in Damascus and Beirut as in Cairo and Tunis

Once again in the Middle East an enormous proletarian bloodbath is being prepared:  what we saw in mid-November 2012 was just a foretaste.  After a week of Israeli air- and sea-raids on the Gaza Strip, there have been 150 deaths, including women and children, amidst the destruction of houses and whole neighbourhoods.  A truce is agreed:  it may last, it may not.  They say that preparations are being made to intervene in Iran and for an attack in Syria.  Whatever happens, it is certain that fresh blood will be shed, so that Bourgeois Law and Order may make itself evident to a world shaken by unrest and proletarian struggles. Faced with the crisis of overproduction, which has been raging for five years now arousing as yet feeble responses from the proletariat, the imperialist States, terrorized by the merely remote possibility that the class war might explode and spread, are preparing the battleground, elaborating their strategies, taking the measure of their own strength and that of others involved.  Israel calls what is really an act of retaliation and the decimation of the civilian population “the right to self-defence”. It is not a question of Palestinians and Israelis, Jews and Muslims, but of proletarians used as a shield to defend a Bourgeois Dictatorship that is bound for destruction. Read more ...
